Review comments on Make Believe from S.M., a reader in Toronto: 

If you liked J.I.'s first novel, you'll enjoy novel number 2 even more. The pacing is fast, the dialogue snappy and there are enough dead bodies to keep mystery fans happy. If you enjoyed the philosophical discussions between the two protagonists the conversation continues here. Is philosophy a prelude to romance? If you could identify with the business corruption at TGT, be prepared...it continues.
